Health Care

CASPER, Wyo. — Better Wyoming invites residents of Natrona and Converse counties to join a conversation discussing healthcare challenges and potential solutions in both their local regions and across the state, according to a press release by Better Wyoming.

The discussion is set for 6–7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at the Natrona County Extension Office in the Evansville-Mills Room, located at 2011 Fairgrounds Road.

“Through our healthcare survey and direct conversations with residents we know there are many people in these communities who struggle to find providers to treat what they need, secure help when it comes to mental health, and even afford health insurance,” stated Bella Pope, a community organizer for Better Wyoming. “But I also know that if we come together and demand solutions from our elected officials we can create real, positive change.”

The summit aims to pinpoint the primary healthcare access challenges in both counties. Following the discussion, volunteers will liaise with networks from other Wyoming communities undergoing similar dialogues. Their collective goal is to influence legislative action for healthcare solutions in the 2024 session.

This event is one of a series of summits that Better Wyoming is hosting throughout Wyoming, centered around the results of its statewide healthcare survey.

Better Wyoming could not be reached to provide other meeting times and places around the state.

Residents from both counties are encouraged to attend, sharing their personal healthcare experiences and insights. Attendees can also look forward to complimentary snacks.
